The Isle of Skye (or an t-Eilean Sgitheanach in its native Gaelic tongue) occupies an almost mythical place in the minds of many Scots. Romantic castles, magnificent seascapes, the alpine peaks of the Cuillin Ridge, marching pipe bands, scattered white crofters’ cottages and a bloody history; the island has all these and more.

This book features 40 moderate walks that take in much of this celebrated landscape, but reveal hidden gems too. In spite of its popularity Skye is still rich in undiscovered treasures, from coastal caves and arches, ruined villages cruelly cleared of their inhabitants, to fossilised dinosaur footprints and a rich array of wildlife. Written by Skye residents Paul and Helen Webster, these walks will reveal both the wild and gentler sides of this dramatic landscape.

Helen and Paul Webster have lived in the Scottish Highlands since 2005 and co-founded Walkhighlands in 2007, a free online guide and forum for walkers in Scotland. They are passionate about the need to conserve wild land while developing local tourism at the same time. Helen and Paul have co-authored 11 walking books.
